Our blood is made up of white blood cells, red blood cells and platelets and some other cellular components. Plasma is one of those components; it is straw-colored and it constitutes 55 percent of our blood. We need plasma because it fights diseases, helps in blood clotting and has many other important functions.
Now plasma donation is extremely important for us because plasma cannot be created in a laboratory; it can only generate inside our body. Therefore, the only way to help those in need of plasma-derived medicines and therapies is to donate plasma.
So let us take a look at some of the plasma donation centers where you can donate plasma and save precious lives.
